Gala honors pastors, seminary benefactors

By the time the annual gala for St. John’s Seminary returns to the Plaza at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels on Sept. 18, it will be a full two years since supporters have been able to meet in person to celebrate the successes of the alumni from the Camarillo campus.

COVID-19 restrictions led to a virtual event in 2020, but it still was one that St. John’s Seminary board president Dan Schwala called “very successful” and marked by generous contributions from benefactors throughout the archdiocese and beyond.
